CX Miniature Hand Chain Hoist

A beauty on the outside, a beast on the inside.

With its smooth lines, integrated aluminum body, and impossibly small size, the CX might seem better suited for displaying than working. Not true. The CX is a remarkable engineering achievement in both design and performance, with the ¼ tonne model weighing less than 6 lbs, the ½ tonne model weighing 9.9 lbs, and the 1 tonne model weighing 16lbs. The heat-treated gears and innovative brake system are also sealed to protect against damage from dust and water, and its hooks have tip-supported latches with wide openings to perform jobs big or small.


The World’s Smallest Hand Chain Hoist

Excellence in engineering led to the development of the world’s smallest industrial hoist—the CX. This uniquely compact and lightweight manual hoist is the perfect solution for light loads in high or difficult-to-reach places.

Advanced Design Overload Limiter

Prevent accidents before they happen and enhance workplace safety with protection against excessive overloading. The CX comes standard with an advanced design overload limiter that recognizes an over-capacity lift and keeps your load stationary.

Tough, Lightweight Aluminum Housing

The CX gives you a unique combination of portability and extreme durability with its lightweight, die-cast aluminum housing. Take this little hoist with you everywhere for the small jobs that require big dependability.

Wide Top and Bottom Hook Openings

Designed for easy installation and load attachment, the CX offers wide top and bottom hook openings that can easily attach to almost any secure mounting point. Rotating top and bottom hooks also provide added flexibility to meet your lifting needs.

Completely Sealed Gears and Brake

Completely sealed brake and gearing give you added protection against damage from dust and water which makes maintenance simple and keeps your hoist performing longer.
